Woah. Dream Theater were one of the first – if not the first – bands I ever interviewed. Specifically then-drummer Mike Portnoy after their gig at Bradford Queens Hall on the original tour for this album. Sadly, the recording is lost in the halls of time, but I still can’t believe it’s been 25 years! I now feel even older than I already am…
